Welcome to our shop!
If you are looking for The Fabric Merchant or Sew Many Stitches then you have found us!

On July 2, 2019, we joined forces to become ECQco. We still offer all the same products and services you have come to expect from both businesses, only now there is just more of everything, all housed in 5000 square feet of space in the historic Templeton's building at 343 Water Street. If you get the chance to visit our store, you must pop in to check out the view: 2500+ bolts of fabric, 365+ Kona solids, two long-arm machines, 2 roomy classrooms, and a front-row seat to the daily bustle that is the St. John's waterfront. It's stunning! We love spending time hearing about your journeys, quilting and otherwise.

The kettle and coffee pot are always on. Sit. Read a quilting book or pattern. Have a refreshment. There's often a baked treat to be had, too. Admire all there is to see.

We are open 7 days a week. There are PayByPhone and Pay Stations ($1.50/hour), free 2- and 4-hour parking nearby, PayByPhone app parking on Harbour Drive, and a private pay-per-use lot and parkade next door. If you are coming to take a workshop with us and would like to drop off your machine and materials at the door before you park, let us know in advance and we'll have someone meet you curbside. You can check out our workshop listings on our website!  Participants also get a 15% discount off purchases on the day of the class or workshop.  How awesome is that!?

Merging our respective businesses was no small undertaking and we are thrilled with the outcome. Debbie, Read (Shelly), and the team at East Coast Quilt co are truly grateful for our quilting community. Thank you for continuing to support us. We hope you enjoy the experience that is East Coast Quilt co as much as we do.
